Nefarious Lake

Cool, tepid waters undulated around her bare legs, sending delicious shivers up her spine, reminding her of the electricity that hung between her and the one that stole her heart. As she smiled, remembering what it felt like to be alive, the inky surface glittered against the starlight. But it didn’t reveal the millions of tiny, razor sharp teeth that awaited her.

  1. This story fascinates me. When I first read it, I interpreted it as a story about a girl who lost her humanity, remembering what it was like to be human. Then, when I read it a second time, I took it as a story about a girl in love who’s ignoring her boyfriend’s hidden dark side. Third read…I think it can go either way. πŸ™‚

    By the way, I love the picture you attached to this story.

    1. Writing takes a lot of time and conscious effort to develop your ‘voice’ and style. You can do it, and your words will resonate with others. Just don’t give up. Some of my earliest work is absolutely terrible.
